Western Australia Roads

Western Australia

This is the largest state in the country, and for road enthusiasts, it is a fascinating place to study. The southwestern corner is where the majority of its population are, which means that other parts are sparsely populated. It was only in the 1980s that you could even drive from one end of the state to the other on a sealed road. The massive development of mining interests and outback tourism helped the state road network. In listing out the highways in Western Australia, a major challenge was how to classify the list since it is pretty complicated. There are highways in the state that are declared highways, some have the title of highways without being one in reality, and some don't have highways attached to their names even though they are highways. This made it necessary for them to classify them with clarifications. Here are the classifications
